  • Dangerous winter storm moves up the East Coast affecting millions!

    Hi everyone!

    I’m sure you’ve already heard we’ve got a major winter storm that is going to affect millions of people over the next few days.  And it will affect travel plans from now until Thursday.

    The system is now pushing across the Mississippi River Valley, bringing a mix of rain/sleet/freezing rain and snow.   Thunderstorms and heavy rain will spread across the Gulf Coast the southeast and Florida through tomorrow. 

    Severe storms are possible with hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes.  1-4 inches of rain will lead to possible flooding.

    The system will affect the Midatlantic /Northeast/Ohio Valley Tues and Wednesday.  There will be rain, snow ice and wind making travel dangerous if not impossible for many.  

    The exact track of the storm and how much cold air will wrap around the system are still uncertain, but this will most definitely disrupt/halt holiday travel. 

    And just because you may not have a flight to or from the Northeast, the fact that planes will be delayed/grounded for a long period of time will cause a huge ripple effect across the country.

    This will be my last post for the next few days.  We had to re-arrange our travel plans to head out tomorrow instead of Wednesday!  I hope you all have a wonderful and SAFE Thanksgiving.  I’ll try to schedule a few open blogs if you want to chat with each other!

    And finally, I’ll leave you with a couple of pictures Matthew drew for us.  So sweet.  I’m a proud mama, and I am Thankful for so many things this year…

    Much love,

    JD

Happy Thanksgiving to all. May all be safe and healthy this season. God Bless our troops and prayers for all. PJ

40 deg., sunny and dry this morning. That should make for some good safe trips to Gramps & Grannies house, or vice-versa. Our family will have our dinner Sat. because of scheduling conflicts. Tomorrow also starts an 8 day razor clam dig. The Sasquatch Festival ended last night out at the North Beaches. The Sasquatch was returned to the wild after signing autographs. Say a prayer for our servicemen, although I must admit the cooks in the Navy really out did themselves on holidays. Sam

Hey everyone, I'm back. I replied to Jane's comment about my earlier comment but since replies sometimes get lost in the shuffle, I thought I'd post something in the main thread. In case others are wondering what happened to Don, I think he just lost interest in the blog. I talk to him on the phone & e-mail him from time to time but I think since things have changed, he just lost interest. I miss his great sense of humor on the blog but at least I'm still in contact with him. Happy Thanksgiving, all! Margie

May all have a very Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving. I pray a safe journey to those traveling especially with all the potentially hazardous weather out there. I am staying in town, overeating severely and watching football. Take care all, JB

Happy Thanksgiving JD and all our regular bloggers and my thanksgiving to all our soldiers who sacrifice so much for us and to my dear blogger friends and hope God blesses all our folks who are having health challenges at this time and to those who have lost loved ones during the year for their comfort. Hope if you are traveling your journey will be a safe one and for the wonderful weather we get in San Diego and the gorgeous sunsets lately.AJ

Good afternoon Janice and all my friendly blogger family. Semi-retired, but checking in to keep in touch with all of you. Sam, salmon sounds very good since I don't eat red meat. Finally, back to my kind of weather. Low 30's in the AM. Prayers to all that are having health issues that you may soon recover fully. Wishing all of you a Happy and safe Thanksgiving day. Please pray for our men and women in the military that they may also enjoy a peaceful day. BG.

Yum, Sam, I love salmon. I must admit that I'm not very good at cooking it. That's what I always order at Red Lobster, but I'm sure you do it much better. Hope all are safe and well today. Cold (39 degrees) with gusty winds in MySouth. Will be in the 20's with teen wind chill tonight. But it's a beautiful, sunny day following several gray, rainy ones. Y'all have a great Thanksgiving and remember in your prayers our military who cannot be with their loved ones on this holiday. Gwen :)

Greeting from the banana belt of the Pacific Northwest. A little frosty this morning but not too bad. My daughter came over with some salmon a friend gave her. He caught several Silvers (8 - 16#) and one big King Salmon at 60#. He fished the Satsop River, about 13 miles east of my house. I cooked some for supper. If I don't get back on before, all you guys have a good, joyous, safe Thanksgiving! Take care. Sam
